The Mandalorian’s Very Own Silver Coin has Arrived! The Limited 2021 1 oz. Silver!
Over the last five years we have seen a momentous return to form for the Star Wars franchise – and today their most recent smash-hit finally receives it’s very own coin! Disney took a chance a few years ago when they released the television show “Mandalorian” on their newest streaming service. The gamble paid off because the show went on to become an international phenomenon and is highly acclaimed by both critics & fans alike!
The smash-hit status of the show “Mandalorian” combined with the recent success of the 2018 and 2019 Star Wars bullion coins means that this special 1 oz. silver issue is sure to be one of the most sought after silver releases from Disney in a very long time!
The First Silver Coin featuring the iconic Bounty Hunter: the 2021 1 oz. Mandalorian
The show “Mandalorian” follows an adopted member of a race of warriors known as ‘Mandalorians’ and is shot in a similar style to the old westerns that featured John Wayne. The ‘Mandalorians’ are an incredibly monastic, tribal, and honorific race of warriors originally hailing from the planet Mandalore. They are almost unparalleled fighters and soldiers, taking great pride on their ability and their adherence to the strict code of ethics they are governed by that is known as ‘The Way’. (Think the Spartans form the movie 300, but in Space!)
The titular Mandalorian is a man by the name of Din Djarin (played by Pedro Pascal), a lone Mandalorian bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy who is rightly feared. He was originally hired by some remnant Imperial forces operating after the destruction of the Death Star – with the mission to retrieve a child of Jedi Master Yoda’s species known as Grogu. Once the Mandalorian meets this child and is then in turn saved by him, he decides to instead go on the run and help protect the infant. While looking to reunite Grogu with others of his kind (the Jedi), they are pursued by the leader of the Imperial Remnant, Moff Gideon, who wants to use Grogu's connection to the Force to rebuild the Empire with him at their head.
Did you know? The Fan-favorite bounty hunter known as ‘Boba Fett’ is a Mandalorian and his iconic armor is specific to Mandalorians (and it is made of one of the strongest metals in the galaxy!)
This is the Way – A True Collecting Rarity from Disney!
The 2018 & 2019 Star Wars pieces were all incredibly popular and lead to almost immediate sellouts with mintages of 250,000 each... so saying collector demand is high for Star Wars Silver is at an all-time high would be quite the understatement!
But, these new Mandalorian coins are kicking it up a notch – with a maximum mintage of just 25,000 total coins! That is right, these 2021 Mandalorian coins are more than 10-times rarer than some of the prior Star Wars bullion coins!
The obverse of the design features the Mandalorian himself – a bounty hunter without compare, who is among the last of his kind. He is shown here in his iconic Mandalorian Armor and bounty hunting gear that is etched with incredible detail.
The reverse of this 2021 Star Wars coin displays an image of Queen Elizabeth II and was produced by the New Zealand Mint on behalf of the Island of Niue Way.
